Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Erik Lamela has said on Instagram that he has suffered a foot injury.
Lamela posted a photo of himself in the gym and confirmed that he will be sidelined for a short period of time due to the problem.
Lamela has not put a timescale on how long it will take for him to recover, but the former AS Roma and River Plate star has said that he is already working to get back to full fitness.

Por un problema en el pie tengo que estar afuera del campo por poco tiempo para arreglarlo 🙏 Ya estoy trabajando para volver en la mejor forma posible 💪👊 I have a problem on my foot and I have to be out of the field for a short time to fix it 🙏 I’m already working to get back in the best shape I can 💪💪
Disappointment for Lamela
The attacking player will hope that his latest problem is not too serious with the team having some important games ahead.
Lamela has made two starts and three substitute appearances in the Premier League and one start and one substitute appearance in the Europa League for Jose Mourinho’s side so far this season, according to WhoScored.
Tottenham Hotspur are going strong
While Lamela will be bitterly disappointed at the injury, Spurs do have enough attacking players to cover him.
Lucas Moura is a very good winger, while attacking midfielder Dele Alli is also an option for Mourinho.
While Lamela is always a good option to have in the squad, Mourinho is unlikely to lose sleep over his absence.
Spurs are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 14 points from seven matches, and find themselves at the top of Europa League Group J with six points from three games.
